What’s best about England holiday cottages?

Location, location, location – it’s the most important consideration for any holiday. England holiday cottages are all across the UK, with many amazing options located out in the countryside, next to the coast, or slap-bang in the middle of the city. The UK boasts some incredible and natural landscapes, for instance the magnificent peaks and bodies of water that define the Lake District, or the wild open spaces of the Yorkshire moors.

In Victorian times holidaymakers would head out in droves to seaside towns like Whitby, Blackpool or Weymouth. These quintessentially British locations are still well worth visiting, offering all the fun of the fair combined with beautiful beaches and rugged coastal paths. The British coastline is an ideal spot for a cottage holiday, and many of the properties on offer have histories dating back to the Industrial Revolution and even beyond – look out for former miner’s properties and even converted mills that are bursting with character.

No cottage holiday is ever the same. Forget cookie-cutter accommodation and choose a home away from home that’s unique and full of character, whether you’re looking for something large and spacious for a group trip, or your very own idyllic hideaway steeped in romance, history, and magic.

What our customers are saying about our Holiday Cottages In England To Rent.

David - verified booking

"My partner and I enjoyed our stay at Hydehill Cottage. It is a traditional stone cottage, adjoining the owners' house and with pretty views forward. Access is by an uneven track (my low-slung sports car had no problems) and parking is above the cottage to the rear. Access to the cottage itself (60 metres) is by steepish steps or potentially slippery grassy slope so possibly not suitable for an elderly person, particularly since the internal stairs are also steep.The garden is pleasantly sunny in the right weather but shared with the owners, who have internal access via a couple of thin wooden doors ("locked"). Noise insulation is therefore poor and the owners' kitchen overlooks the cottage access, again limiting privacy. The cottage is also overlooked from the rear, where the site rises, and the bathroom has no frosted glass, another potential privacy issue. The central heating system is also shared with the owners, tenants having only limited control. The only additional heating is from the solid fuel stove in the sitting room. Wifi is available but insecure and proved intermittent.Decor, furnishings and tableware are pleasantly traditional and in good condition. The oven and microwave work well and appear recent. The bed/s (arranged as a double or singles on request) is/are comfortable and the duvet warm. Some floors are uneven, which might again be a problem for older folk. The rooms are all good sizes, which is not always the case with holiday cottages, and the owners are sensitive regarding their dogs. These are not unduly intrusive and well controlled. The owners welcome tenants with dogs but the cottage does not smell of dogs, another occasional holiday cottage problem.We were welcomed by the owner, shown around the cottage, and invited to ask if there was anything we needed - a pleasant touch these days. There was no 'welcome snack' - scones or whatever - and tenants will need to bring all basic foodstuffs, such as sugar, milk, etc.This part of the Cotswolds is really very interesting and attractive. It is an area which we have regularly driven through but never stayed to appreciate. There is however a great deal to see and enjoy and I would recommend others to do the same. Accepting the limitations of the cottage I would have no hesitation about booking it again."

"This bungalow was clean and comfortable.The beds were fantastic what a treat.A tip for owners is to have a welcome pack.It doesn't have to big but after a long drive to make a drink/cup of tea would be welcome start to the holiday.Also there wasn't any spare toilet paper. I brought my own but as the nearest shop was at least 25 minutes walk those little bits go a long way especially as the bungalow in it self was at a high standard with beautiful wooden furnishings.The garden is well maintained and peaceful gorgeous.It is quite a walk to the beach so a car is best.Not many places to eat out. We found The Kings Head which was good.About 15minutes drive.A lovely get away but not close to shops or anywhere for retail therapy.Wi-Fi actually works which was brilliant for the teenagers.Once at the beach it is beautiful. The Sandy beach was deserted and a pleasure. So if you want a well maintained contained clean peaceful family holiday.Driftwood is the place.Best to have a car as local amenities including the beach are about 25/ 30 minutes walking distance."

"The Base was an excellent location being right on the seafront at St Leonards. The apartment was surprisingly large, very comfortable and very well equipped. Other reviewers have mentioned damp but it certainly wasn't an issue for us. On street car parking is free but it was difficult to find a space. However, this was not a problem as we just decided to walk everywhere or parked in the public car park nearby. Carol Anne was very welcoming and left us a pint of milk so that we could have a cuppa on arrival after a long journey. Carol Anne also put fresh flowers is the rooms. In the summer, and when the scaffolding comes down I'm sure the front courtyard will be a lovely place to sit. One of the main things for us was that it was dog friendly. Some nice restaurants within walking distance."

"Fabulous little cottage to stay in. Perfect location and suited our needs as three lady friends together all wanting our own rooms. So good to have all the bedrooms of similar quality and comfort. Even the single room was decorated nicely with decent bedding and excellent quality mattress. The property was full of of character and very homely. Everything we needed for our stay. Very pleased to have the extra toilet upstairs even if very compact!Parking could be an issue as it’s a very narrow road and only one entry point but we managed to get a spot every night outside the house. Great village with two good restaurants very close on the High street and a good choice of pubs in walking distance. Friendly people and we felt like locals just after a couple of days."

"The setting of this accommodation is amazing, the views are lovely and the sun rises right through the front window making it a pleasure to “rise and shine”. It is small with some limitations on equipment so visitors need to accept that it is a bit like camping - little storage, no oven, no proper fridge and no TV. Also there are animals nearby so some country smells and flies although they weren’t so bad during my stay despite the hot weather. The bed was comfy, it was very clean and came with all the other bits and pieces one needs for self catering. It would certainly suit a couple who like to eat out and don’t mind living out of a suitcase. The area and the setting make up for the limitations and its great to see the animals. Peaceful and relaxing for sure."
